And this will probably create some kind of scandal, but...
I fell in love.
Over the Internet.
I know that I shouldn't even be looking at the ads on Craigslist.
To do, with the intent of a pick up, would be cheating on my obligations here at home.
But, nevertheless, I was looking...
And then it happened.
The way "Paul" had himself marketed was not to his favor.
The ad should have read:
Tall, dark and handsome. A little beat up around the edges due to life in general, but still a lot of life left in me. Hardworking, great character, well built, and totally hot.
But, just from a photograph, and very few words, there was a physical attraction for me.
So, I decided to meet "Paul", in person and see if there was a spark...some chemistry.
He had lived with a woman for years and years and years...but she didn't want him anymore.
I traveled out to his house and imagine my surprise, he was so much better looking in person. His photo online really didn't do him any favors.
The best thing about him?
He had an identical twin.
It was love at first sight.
So, I brought them home to meet my family.
Here they are with Corey.
I'd like to introduce...
Paul Bunyan Bedposts I and II.
And no, sorry, I don't share.
But you know how it is with any romance...
After awhile you find some things that you want to change.
So, with a little cut...
A little paste...
A little paint...
A little distressing...
Add cheap candles from Wally's World...
Aren't they heavenly?
I am living proof...
Internet romances really can work...
P.S. Have you seen the big candle holders like this at Pottry Barn? $149 each. Ouch! My total cost for this project? $15...total.
Lots of great parties to link too-check them out here.
